Today we saw KitKat 10.5.A.0.227 firmware getting certified for Xperia Z, ZL, ZR and Tablet Z on PTCRB and a few days back we saw same firmware getting leaked online also and now the news is coming that a new higher android 4.4.2 KitKat build 10.5.A.0.230 firmware have struck Xperia Z in Malaysia and Denmark region as reported by many users in Sony Xperia Malaysia FB group and on XDA also.

All the users who reported this new KitKat 10.5.A.0.230 firmware for Xperia Z got it as OTA update, 307.1 MB in size but were not able to install it via OTA. We have not seen yet many Xperia Z users reporting this update. Do check your Xperia Z also if you are getting an OTA update notification for same update or not.

[ UPDATE ] XDA Dev DooMLoRD says 10.5.A.0.230 firmware is currently in testing for prototype devices .

Check below the OTA update notification for 10.5.A.0.230 firmware.

For Malaysia region

Xperia Z 10.5.A.0.230 firmware

Xperia Z KitKat firmware 10.5.A.0.230 update

For Denmark region

10.5.A.0.230 firmware Xperia Z

It can’t be said at this moment about the authenticity of this new 10.5.A.0.230 firmware update unless we see an official announcement from Sony. We will soon try to grab the 10.5.A.0.230 firmware ftf.

Do let us know if you have got this new 10.5.A.0.230 firmware update. Drop your comments below.

Thanks Ben 🙂

    I think that’s the problem of PTCRB’s certification system because sometime it may delay the date of certification, like the 101 update.

    maybe the 230 firmware has been sent to PTCRB after 223 for few days and certified , but PTCRB haven’t update their own system?
